The general idea of U3A is that members share their knowledge, skills, experience and enthusiasm - to teach themselves and each other without any need for paid teachers. Group members are both learners and teachers.
U3A interest/activity Groups depend on mutual support and the sharing of knowledge. They are formed by members with a common interest suggesting a topic, discussing together what and how they wish to learn, and then deciding on the means to achieve their aims. One of U3A's guiding principles is that learning must be primarily for fun and enjoyment. There are no examinations or qualifications, although Group members are sometimes involved in carrying out research on specific subjects in which they have an interest.
Information on Kings Hill and District U3A’s Groups and their Leaders/Hosts are given on this page. Our Groups Coordinator will also advise where and when each Group meets. Sometimes Groups may be full and will temporarily have a waiting list. New interest/activity Groups may be formed at any time, whenever there is a demand for them, say by two or three members having a common interest.
